About

Chemical Engineering encompasses the fields of chemistry, materials science and process engineering. Chemical engineers are also well versed in areas such as fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.

This MSc programme puts you at the forefront of R&D in innovative chemical processes, novel materials and new products. You will harness the latest technology and techniques to address the challenges that face society. For instance, you can discover whether biomass conversion is able to provide lasting energy solutions, explore the potential of membrane technology to purify water, or use your knowledge of biomolecules to develop new materials or to generate power by osmosis. At the University of Twente you can focus on process engineering or materials science. During the Master’s you will benefit from our close ties with high profile research institutes, including the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and the MIRA Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine. You will fulfil the role of junior researcher from early on in your Master’s, giving presentations, writing articles and getting involved in grant applications. It is a highly international programme. You will write and present in English and have the opportunity to complete an internship abroad. As a chemical engineer, your career prospects are good, especially in process engineering and research.

Specialities:

Molecules and Materials Engineering:

This track explores functional organic molecules and assemblies, polymers with defined molecular and mesoscopic structures, inorganic materials (membranes, nanocomposites, thin films) and organometallic materials. Research in organic and supramolecular chemistry encompasses molecular nanofabrication and biomolecular nanotechnology. Application areas include biosensing, solar fuels, tissue and virus engineering, functional and switchable nanoarchitectures, and protein cages. Current research themes in inorganic materials include the synthesis of nanocomposites, two-dimensional materials and nanostructured materials (photovoltaics, (photo)catalysis). We also explore nanoporous systems and thin films, heterostructures of nanocrystalline materials for membranes, (micro)electronic and sensing applications. Research in organic materials (polymers) centres onthe controlled fabrication at nanoscale of complex architectures and their use in molecular motors, sensors or, actuators. Other research centres on the potential of biocompatible and biodegradable polymers in tissue engineering and the use of polymeric nanoparticles with customized surfaces for targeted drug or gene delivery.

Chemical and Process Engineering:

In this track you will integrate knowledge of thermodynamics, transport phenomena, catalysis, chemical reactor engineering, separation technology, plant & process design and simulation, control, economics, safety and sustainability. You will explore research themes in the fields of bio-refinery, CO2 removal, waste stream treatment, (new) processes based on sustainable raw materials and process improvement. You will develop catalysts, multiphase and other novel reactors, (reactive) separation processes, and design and simulate processes. Separation technology focuses on (reactive) distillation, membrane separation of gases or fluids and various operations using solid or liquid (affinity) separation for adsorption and extraction. Photocatalysis focuses on converting solar and electrical energy into chemical energy. Catalysis aims at developing new heterogeneous catalysts for specific industrial applications. Sustainable process technology develops new process concepts for bio-refinery applications and sustainable raw materials. Other research themes: interfacial phenomena and processes important for mass and heat transport, sub-micron filtration processes, micro reactors etc.
